Fish are disappearing on me.

I have a 60 gallon fish/reef tank setup. Lately I have been noticing a clicking sound coming from the tank at night and fish are dissappearing on me. So far I have lost a coral banded shrimp, yellow eyed tang, sea hare, several crabs, and a few goby's. Does anyone know what could be causing this? It is getting to be rather pricey!

Sounds like a mantis shrimp. Can cause real havoc. Google it and see.

Yeah I'd say mantis or pistol shrimp. Good luck getting him out. I've read many horror stories.

If you can't find whatever it is coming out after lights out, take a long glass and put some food at the bottom of the glass. Have the glass tilted so when it goes inf or the food and is unable to get out afterwards.
Can we have some more info about the tank and how you acclimated the livestock? How long were the above listed in the tank before they vanished?
